Big And Not So Proud

Women and men dream of being thin throughout their lives, but being thin doesn’t come easy. You can eat healthily and exercise but still, be a little bigger than what you would like. It’s human nature to be different and, in truth, being on the big side can be a very common thing for most people. Unfortunately, there are many who get to a point in their lives where weight overtakes all other things and becomes their sole focus.

How Do You Feel About Your Weight?

For some, they don’t mind being larger and even find it’s something that actually suits them. Some have been big at one point in their lives, lost a lot of weight and found that they looked far older and realized that becoming thin didn’t suit their new looks. It’s strange but true in a lot of cases. However, there have also been many who’ve lost weight and love their new looks. You can lose weight but not become too thin to the point that you would dislike yourself, something you should remember. Large and not so proud? You aren’t alone in this but you shouldn’t always be afraid to be who you are if that is who you love.

Why Do You Hate Being Large?

What has made you dislike who you are? Have you been bullied, taunted, or have just seen yourself in a new light? No matter what it is, it’s important to understand your change of heart. It could be that you were always unhappy about your weight but were never able to do anything about it. Alternatively, it might be that someone has said something to make you see your body differently. It’s quite important to understand why you are feeling the way you do as it can be a positive way to start seeing you in a positive light and find a way to move forward. You don’t have to be proud to be large but you don’t have to hate yourself for it either. It’s important to remember that just because you are larger it doesn’t make you a bad person. Weight gain can be done easily, but it’s very had to shed off. Continue reading.

Making Positive Steps to Change the Way You Feel

Those small changes can lead to big things and help you get on the road to a happier and healthier life. You can lose some excess pounds and feel better about yourself or just feel a lot fitter. Positive steps can be very influential whether it’s walking to work every day, feeling able to do so or just play with the kids. Little changes are going to push you and inspire you to do more. Being on the big side doesn’t always have to be a bad thing but if you want to make a change you can if you want to. Don’t be pushed into doing anything you don’t want to. More info coming from

Think Positively and Love Your Body

Don’t be ashamed of your body. You might not be a size zero but you don’t have to be. You can be a size ten, twenty, or forty and feel happy about your body.

“Try to think of your body as something to care for instead of something that needs to be whipped into a certain shape. The more respect and kindness you can show your body, the easier it will be to make the choices that help you take good care of it,” writes Renee Engeln Ph.D.

Everyone has this unhealthy obsession with weight but who says being skinny or thin is that attractive or appealing? Being overweight or larger is nothing to be ashamed of and you don’t have to feel like an outcast.

“Researchers have spent decades building a persuasive body of evidence that exposure to images of the ultra-thin beauty ideal for women is bad news for body image. On top of that, these images can play a key role in the development of eating disorders. When those images are digitally altered to create a level of beauty that is truly unreal (instead of just unusual), their effects on women’s self-esteem can be even more potent,” writes Renee Engeln Ph.D.

Ultimately, be proud of who you are, your achievements, and feel happy with your own skin.

“Self-compassion goes beyond simply turning the tables on which body types are valued and which ones are disparaged. Instead, it involves acknowledging that beauty comes in many forms, and that no one is perfect,” writes Juliana Breines Ph.D.
